I have nothing but GOOD things to say about this ski. It's the only bombproof park ski made by Nordica, hence why this is a stiff ski, so buttering is difficult on this ski. It's asymmetrical, so skiing switch is fairly different than riding forward. The top sheets are vinyl, so it's fairly chip-proof when you cross your skis to grab mute or blunt. It handles very well in shin-deep powder, despite the fact there is no early rise in the tip and tail. There is a sandwich sidewall, and the graphics on the base somewhat mimics the top sheet graphics. I definitely would recommend this ski to anyone who is trying to progress in the park or all mountain, and anyone who needs a ski that is bombproof and/or can give the perfect response while hitting urban or the biggest park features.
